Eola Sapphire

Hosta "Eola Sapphire" review

'Eola Blue Sapphire'. Discovery that is sure to excite gardeners with space for this large clump-forming perennial. Large dark green puckered leaves are thicker textured and attain a bluer coloration with age. Spikes of pale lilac flower clusters in early summer. Herbaceous. Bold clumps to 30 to 36 inches tall, 4 feet wide. Intense blue in early spring. It was a result of seed from Chuck Purtymun of Walden West by Monrovia Nursery's Steve Hottovy and one of only a few plants he produced. If large blue hostas catch your eye, turn your attention to this huge hybrid boasting mature dimensions of 96" wide x 48" high. A cerulean gem, Hosta 'Eola Sapphire' is oozing charisma! Don't miss the wonderfully sculpted, rugose leaves that turn this way and that to show off their heavy duty charm.
